San Francisco Arts & Crafts pokerwork picture


Code: 10258

A charming and unusual pair of small oak wide framed pokerwork (pyrographic) panels of a house in San Francisco, by Charles Snellgrove (1863-1938); signed and dated to front 1911.
These were apparently made as a gift for his brother John and his wife; showing back and front views of their house in 226 Putnam St, San Francisco, California in March 1911 (fully incised information to backs).
Charles Snellgrove is a listed American artist; born in England in 1863 and by 1890 had settled in San Francisco, where he eventually died January 25th 1938.
